Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Professor Jason Leitch

The idea of a normal Christmas is a “fiction” and Scots should prepare for digital celebrations, national clinical director Jason Leitch has said.

The government has insisted that the latest Covid-19 restrictions are having an impact on the spread of the virus.

But Prof Leitch told BBC Scotland there was “absolutely no question” of a “normal” Christmas being allowed.

Measures could be eased if case numbers fall, but Mr Leitch said people should “get their digital Christmas ready”.


First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the government was making “really tough” decisions and would not “tell people what they want to hear to make it easier in the here and now”.

    I think people will show governments around the world what is “allowed”

    People want to live, not just exist

    All together now:

    Have yourself a pixelated Christmas
    And also New Year’s night.
    If Zoom’s not on
    Our family will be out of sight
